Smooth, creamy and full of life with rich chocolate, toffee & caramel tones. Its depth of flavour is akin to a night spent with someone way out of your league. You know it's a special experience you won’t have often, so you look you know what you are doing and enjoy every bit as much as you can before it’s over.
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: This is rich, creamy and has intense chocolate/toffee tones, a great milk stout with a donkey kick of carbonation to give it extra life
A long sparge ago in a mash tun far far away... The elite soldiers of the Hopire. They serve as ever present reminders of the absolute power of the Hoperor. These faceless enforcers of the New Order are considered an extension of the Hoperor's will, and thus they often use efficient yet usually unreasonable tactics as a way to keep thousands of brewery systems throughout the galaxy in line. Guardians of our precious resources they will happily lay down their life for the Hoperor to prevent rebel brewers making bad ale.
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: This American Pale Ale uses a great mix of Columbus & Cascade hops with a little homegrown varieties to balance it out. It is an excellently balanced hoppy ale and is always in high demand
A warrior like this is rare. Strength gained the hard way by being heated and mashed until everything sweet has been extracted from what he once was. Resilient his now noble footprint commands respect by even the toughest adversary. Seen as an outsider, he has the body to survive where others cannot. Embrace the warrior within
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: This is a fantastically well balanced Pilsner showcasing the very best in local hops. The elegantly woven mix of Riwaka & Motueka hops at various stages offer a delightfully crisp New Zealand Pilsner. A very subtle hint of fruity Nelson Sauvin hops elevates this brew above the rest in our view.
Showing his Alpha side, he embraces the bitterness within. Bold enough to go where he dares, he leaves a mark strong with depth. Those that challenge his style quickly see he is not to be played with, even though he comes across a little fruity at first. When the road calls, you answer !
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: It is a hoppy, fruity & bitter IPA made using only New Zealand hops with generous servings of Pacific Jade & Nelson Sauvin
We have wanted to brew this beer for quite some time now. After finally getting a bag of the precious Amarillo hops, we didn't waste time and smashed out 1200 litres as soon as we could.. it'll be a while before we can make this bad boy again
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: With a sweet malt finish and nutty citrus flavour from Amarillo & Simcoe Hops, this brew is a bit of an unstoppable force.
Bordering the route less traveled, a red with admirable body and strength. Not to be tested by the faint of heart, it is brave to the very end. Tony, this one’s for you mate. Rest easy bro
"It hits your nose so hard your mouth feels what's coming next" Brewed with Cam from SOUTHPAW BREWING COMPANY in Christchurch.

We are pretty excited about 'The Filth' This is a 9.8% Double IPA, we recommend a small glass To make the most of this brew its best to get your first sip and wrap it round your molars before swallowing Initially the strong bitterness will awaken every taste bud you have and coat your palate in a bit of a resinous explosion. Once established as you continue the taste, the hop flavours begin to shine quite potently in different ways offering new levels of flavour with each sip. The experience is one of an evolving journey from beginning to end. It truly is Resinous, it truly is Hoppy & a little bit of awesome all encompassing filth ! You're welcome
With this Baltic Porter we wanted to create something a little different. Layer Cake is layered with subtle multiple flavours, you get all the smooth complex malt sweetness and roasted tones of a Baltic porter with a twist. This Chocolate Baltic has Organic Cocoa nibs added during fermentation giving it an additional velvety sweet layer. The Ruby red grapefruit coupled with the distinctive Mandarina Bavaria hops offers the unique icing on this cake and lends itself to a beautiful orange colour profile not normally found in a Porter. We've all seen white stouts, now its time to experience an 'Orange' Baltic Porter ! Layer Cake - You're not getting out, you're only getting in
